Our clinics have been established for the detection and treatment of specific eye health conditions. The clinics offer specialised eye health services beyond the scope of a standard eye examination. Each clinic is run by passionate staff members with genuine interest in their chosen speciality.
We are continuing to add new advanced treatments by investing in continuing education for our staff and new technologies for our practices. Our current clinics available are The Children's Vision Clinic, The Low Vision Clinic, The Dry Eye Clinc, The Ortho K Clinic, and The Speciality Contact Lens Clinic.
If you’re a glasses or contact lens wearer, you probably think that you’ll be wearing glasses or contact lenses for the rest of your life. This may no longer be the case thanks to a new advance in technology known as Orthokeratology or ‘Ortho K’.
Ortho K consists of a customised pair of contact lenses that reshape your eyes overnight. In the morning, you will be able to see clearly enough to go without glasses or contact lenses for the whole day. This treatment is made possible due to advances in contact lens design and manufacturing techniques. Modern lens materials transmit enough oxygen to make it safe and comfortable to wear the lenses overnight.
Ortho K provides freedom from eyewear during the day without the need for invasive permanent surgery. If you were to stop using your Ortho K lenses the eye would resume the shape it was before the treatment began.
If your child's eyesight is rapidly deteriorating and they keep needing stronger lenses, Ortho K may help delay their vision’s decline. Age is not a derminant of suitability for Ortho K some patients as young as eight years have been successful with these overnight lenses. If you are interested in having your child assessed for their suitability to try Ortho K, call our Hamilton practice on 07-839 3072 to book an appointment.
The one-off fitting fee is $1950, this includes the first set of hard contact lenses and covers all appointments and any lens exchanges required within the first 6 months.
